Dear Gossips,

The Blue Ivy Carter has NO problem being up there in front of thousands of screaming people, non? In fact, that kid wants the microphone, like, now. As if a child of the Beysus would ever have stage fright. Not when her mother is the main event and everyone else the warmup. Not when she turned the MTV Video Music Awards into her own concert. You want to know why the rest of the show was so sh-t and poorly produced, with snakes biting dancers in rehearsal and missed cues and late switching and microphone checks at the wrong times? The entire budget was spent on the last 15 minutes.

That’s why Maroon 5 was the house band. God I loved that so much. Beyonce did that. So we’ll get to the Beyonce Video Music Awards and other gossip from the weekend and then we shift focus to the Emmy Awards tonight. Duana and I will be liveblogging starting at 7:30pm ET and there will be a full 30+ article recap tomorrow. Two all-nighters in a row – join us!

Yours in gossip,

Lainey

There is nothing else. Nothing left. Nothing but Beyonce. You know, somehow JLO’s Slum Bear, Casper Smart, found a job choreographing for Nicki Minaj. That sh-t doesn’t feel shame but he should. Because everything else was a mess compared to what Beyonce delivered – her ENTIRE album, much of it reworked from On The Run for this, her MTV Video Vanguard moment, so that there could be no question about Who Is The Greatest? Now? It’s just Beyonce. Full Story

Dear Gossips,

Wait, I thought the rumour was that Carrie Underwood was performing at halftime at the Super Bowl …? Instead the Wall Street Journal reported the other day that the NFL has invited Rihanna, Katy Perry, and Coldplay …but that if they want the gig, they have to pay the league for the opportunity. The artists’ reaction? A “chilly reception”.

One of the arguments against this proposal is that it would essentially turn the halftime show into a giant commercial.  Read Full Intro

Dear Gossips,

HBO has released a trailer for the upcoming On The Run concert film that’s to be shot in Paris in September, then airing on HBO Canada and HBO on September 20. So if the Carter Corporation is dissolving, it won’t be until then. At least? We should have a better idea, or what we think is a better idea, in 6 days on Sunday, at the MTV VMAs.

Someone emailed to ask a very good question this weekend: Beyonce managed to lock down an entire album, 17 songs and videos, but how is it that EVERYONE seems to be talking sh-t and they can’t control those leaks?

Over the weekend she posted a photo of a set of open handcuffs. OMG IS IT A MESSAGE?

What does Beyonce hate the most? She hates it when other people are telling HER story. Will she let them be right? Because if she does this, if she walks away from Jay and her marriage, she makes them right.  Read Full Intro

The internet is reporting that Beyonce and Rihanna might be collaborating on a remix of B’s song Blow. Apparently a track has been registered that has both their names on it. Click here to see. You believe? I believe that if it’s true, it’s another OBVIOUS IN YOUR FACE way for B to address some of those rumours. Full Story

Taylor Swift was on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon. Wednesday. She wore black and white. Then she changed into something else that was black and white before heading home. The hair is still not ideal. The shoe game however is working. While talking to Fallon, Taylor confirmed that she will perform at the MTV VMAs on August 24. Full Story

Beyonce posted these shots of herself to Instagram earlier this week: Um, I love those apron pants. I need them. Anyway, according to US Weekly, Beyonce was staying at Gwyneth Paltrow’s LA estate. You think B has to ask G for permission before she publishes pictures taken inside G’s home? Anyone else, of course. Full Story

Dear Gossips,

“Of course, sometimes sh-t go down when there’s a billion dollars on an elevator.”

Ohhhhh…so is that why Solange Knowles went at JayZ with all four limbs and probably a lot of foam at the mouth?

Beyonce’s cash register says “yes”.

She almost broke the internet and social media again this weekend when she dropped a surprise new track: the Flawless remix with Nicki Minaj and a few choice lyric changes, including the above reference to what went down between her husband and his sister earlier this year and this:

“You wish I was your pound cake.”

Does that mean no one’s telling her to eat the cake?

Beyonce keeps making up riddles about herself and we are supposed to keep asking, keep wondering.  Read Full Intro

Beyonce vs Page Six, Beyonce by design

Page Six has been going hard on Beyonce and Jay Z the last couple of weeks. A few days ago, it was this report on how the two are reassessing their marriage. Key details: -They care more about the business behind their brand than the emotion (Yes. Full Story

Dear Gossips,

How much do you think Universal paid Beyonce to be involved, somehow, in Fifty Shades Of Grey? When you work with Beyonce, it’s not just a song on the soundtrack either. It’s whatever Beyonce wants. If Beyonce wants to be the one to post a new teaser for the movie on Instagram, that’s what Beyonce gets. Worth it?

When Sarah from Cinesnark asked me about it yesterday, I told her that Fifty Shades Of Beyonce suddenly seems a lot more appealing to me. Beyonce + Sam Taylor-Johnson? Even better. Most of the time, a film is not better than the book. This time, the film will DEFINITELY be better than the book. Not that it would be hard, because you can’t get worse than that book and the “inner goddess” but it seems like Universal has the sense to spend money were it matters, complementing the property with the kind of ancillary support – in the form of Beysus, no less – that suggests that what we might be seeing in the movie is a lot more high quality than what we had to endure in the writing.  Read Full Intro

Dear Gossips,

The MTV VMA nominations were announced yesterday. How do you get Beyonce to come to your show? You put her name in as many categories as possible. It’s not like she didn’t give them an entire album’s worth of chances.

The VMAs are happening on August 24th. Guess what? Beyonce just happens to be available. She and Jay Z take On The Run to San Francisco on August 6 and then they break until September 12 for two shows in Paris that will be filmed for the HBO special.

The last time Beysus was at the VMAs it was 2011. She performed Love On Top…and hijacked the entire show with a mic drop belly-rub to announce her pregnancy. I remember it vividly. Because Sasha was crying at me over text. Sh-t, even I was excited, and I don’t really get excited about babies. That’s Beyonce.  Read Full Intro

Dear Gossips,

On The Run. I need a day to process. It was a narrative for sure. And we debated it endlessly afterwards – what was her message? Or is the message just that it’s just a major mind f-ck? All I can tell you right now is that I never, ever, ever want them to break up.

As for how On The Run stands on concert quality – I’ll say this: better than The Mrs Carter Show. And when I say this, you know I mean it’s all in degrees of excellence, right? The Beyonce standard never dips below and A. It’s just…how far beyond A she manages to take it. A lot of it had to do with the quality of the interlude films. At times during Mrs Carter, those videos were kinda amateur. Now, I guess with all that work she did on the secret album-video drop last December, she’s figured it out how to make that aspect of her live performance even better.  Read Full Intro

Check out the Carters, Beyonce and Jay Z On The Run in Philadelphia on Friday, celebrating the Fourth. At the end of the show, after Forever Young, Jay pulled B in for a hug and kiss. As you know, there were rumours all last week that Beyonce changed the lyrics to Resentment, and everyone was speculating that he cheated on her, and that she’s readying to leave him after the tour. Full Story
